Taking a walk
Not knowing its name
its beauty only.
Ok-Koo Kang Grosjean
in a relative way, labels have a function and can be useful. we use them to communicate and to understand a particular aspect or aspects of something or someone, but labels are limiting and not representative of the entirety of something or someone, which is to say – the absolute truth, which is far more spacious and expansive than mere words or concepts can hold. the absolute can’t be held (so let go!).
when we view something or someone, we can also drop the labels, the story, and just experience them.
this can be a practice. dropping our labels and instead, just experiencing something or someone as they are, without thinking, investigating, analyzing, critiquing, judging, and simply allow space for the object or being to speak to us, to reveal themselves to us, to be truly seen by us.
this is a practice in generosity, allowing space.
this is a way of loving, of embodying love.
